national average finds mitt romney now ahead tonight 47.3% to president obama's 47.1%, but keep in mind this is well within that margin of error meaning tonight this race is still locked in a dead heat. we begin in florida. mitt romney agrees to flip a coin for a friendly touch football game between his staff and the traveling press corps. romney's advisors say they expect a strong performance. >> we have to have a strong national security structure, and i think you will see governor romney contrasting that with the economic failures of the last four years. >> in maryland, the president wrapped up his own debate preparation and headed to florida. his advisers say they are confident the president will reach out to women. >> the president has been a strong and steady leader. we have response plea ended the war in iraq. we are going to end the war in afghanistan. alkyd dough is a shadow of its former shelf. >> out to colorado now. vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke to supporters talking about the stakes at risk in this election with a final stop in pueblo this afternoon. >> look,
, while president obama hit three more swing states. what are the candidates' strategies for the final stretch? karl rove on romney's approach. >> indict president bam become's record using his own words and standards and do in zo in sorrow, not in anger. disappointment, not malice. second of all, talk about that he has a plan to help the middle class. the final element is accentuate he was a republican governor in a heavily democrat state. >> dana: karl on obama's campaign strategy. >> frankly, they have not offered a plan for the second term. they took his convention speech, boiled it -- bumped it up to 20-page pamphlet and handed it out as a plan for the future. the second element of the strategy, attack romney. say, they got three ads up running now. on the stump and in their ads and commentary, they'll depict romney as a liar. this is really difficult to do. dangerous for a president to do. unpresidential, and it's difficult to do when your opponent has higher favorable ratings than you do. >> dana: take a look at the front page at the "des moines register" today. this is a paper
points over -- that's four percentage points over president obama, and with the clock ticking down until voters head to the polls, every minute, every second on the campaign trail could be critical. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. chris, hello from dallas. >> hi, megyn. meg and let's -- i'm still thinking about boca even though i've maneuvered over to -- moved over to dallas. [laughter] but these two candidates are eyes on the road. they are all about what's over the next two weeks and ground game. your thoughts on where we go in the wake of last night from here. >> well, here's the deal, even if the president can claim a victory inside the debate winning with some focus groups, not others, even if he can say that, he didn't achieve his objective, and the objective last night was to use the last remaining scheduled moment to reset an election that he's losing, that he's on his way to lose, that he missed his opportunity to reset the race. he came out swinging very hard against mitt romney, cometted on the attack, scorn
assumed he wouldn't be appearing like he was the incumbent and obama would act as the challenger. as i slept on and talk to republican strategists today, i think they think they're ahead. he was like someone ahead trying to do no harm, and i think he accomplished what he set out to do, which was establish that he had a presidential temperament and stature to be commander in chief, which the early reaction showed. fair-minded observers would say he hit that mark. he also wanted to take away the ability of the president in his closing arguments these next two weeks to cast romney as a warmonger, and i think he did that. i'm told they wanted to not scare women and turn it to the economy whenever they could, and he did all that. so i'm actually from obama's point of view very anxious a day after. it also suggests that kind of prevent/defend strategy shows how confident they were last night. >> matt, does romney seem competent as command ner chief when he continually is hugging the president's positions and saying i agree, i agree, i agree and i was no substantive critique of your foreign p
president obama and mitt romney tied neck and neck at 47%, making this the first time in history that team romney is excited to actually talk about the 47%. it's monday, october 22nd and this is "now." >>> joining me today, msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, our favorite import from the united kingdom, richard wolffe. and former dnc communications director and msnbc political analyst, the lovely karen finney. all even with one to go. the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll finds president obama and governor romney are tied among likely voters at 47%. as the two candidates head into their final debate tonight. last month, the president led by five points. at this point in 2004, president bush and senator john kerry were also all tied up. will this election end up favoring the incumbent as it did in 2004? this latest poll shows both candidates have paths to victory. governor romney has made demographic inroads. the president's lead among women is down to the lowest it has been this cycle and governor romney holds a ten-point lead among men. the president's support
policy debate. this morning, the campaign handed out a 20-page booklet to reporters outlining an obama second term agenda and here's the ad they made to go with it. >> we're not there yet but we've made real progress and the last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years. making education and training a national priority. building on our manufacturing goal. boosting american made energy. reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where we can and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. >> last night, the president was certainly aggressive. romney may have played it safe but made no major mistakes and his supporters also declared victory. analysts point out there's agreement on many key issues. on style, the president with zingers an pulled out the most quoted one when romney mentioned the navy. >> our navy is smaller now than any time since 1917. >> i think governor romney maybe hasn't spent time looking at how the military works. you mentioned navy, for example. fewer ships than in 1916. governor, we fewer horses than bayonets because the nature of
received nearly $2 million from obama's stimulus programs. so let's go straight to gloria borgeer who i know is watching the speech. my question number one for you is this. i didn't hear a lot new in the speech. i'm guessing you didn't hear much new in the speech either. so given that fact, isn't it a bit risky, though, to introduce new policy here with 10, 11 days to go? isn't this really about getting voters excited getting out to vote? >> it's about getting independent voters to really take a look at you as somebody who is reasonable. as you said, this is really not about new ideas. this is about a different tone, a different kind of appeal. talking about change. i mean, four years ago. remember, barack obama was the candidate of change. you can't do that when you're the incumbent but it's easy to do when you're the challenger. so you make the case for change. you admit, as mitt romney did, that barack obama was kind of dealt a bad hand, but then you say, you know what? he didn't do enough to get us out of this. he didn't do what he needed to do. and i'm optimistic, show some optimis
weeks. that is all it lasted. that is the only time during the obama years we've hit 4%. we haven't been at a sustained 4% level since the middle of the last decade. bill: wow. stuart, thank you. see you 9:20 on fbn. stuart varney. martha. martha: governor romney highlighting the economy on the campaign trail. he is set to deliver his closing arguments on that today in two critical swing states. governor romney will deliver a peach on the economy in ames, iowa. and then head to a critical battleground ohio at north canton ohio. ryan will go to north carolina and al obama before meeting up with the governor in the buckeye state. the polls show neck-and-neck race for the iowa's six electoral votes. romney hopes the speech will win over some voters. john roberts is there. good morning. what can we expect from governor romney's closing argument today? >> reporter: hi, martha. talking about the economy, deficit, federal spending according to his campaign. here in ames, iowa talk about the struggles, the fact that we can't keep borrowing and spending our way to debt. the basic message from gov
with laser focus and a swing state blitz. president obama scheduled to speak at a rally in we wat just minutes from now. the busiest single day today of his campaign. the president expected to canvass over 5,000 miles traveling from iowa to colorado to nevada to florida across country and back again. the president's primary mission, energize supporters and mobilize early voters. >> my plan will actually move america forward. it's not just a sales job. we joke. governor romney being all over the map, but it speaks to something important. it speaks of trust. you know me. you know i mean what i say. you know that i do what i say i'm going to do. >> speaking about being all over the map, romney will ping-pong back and forth between ohio and iowa the next three days. the republican nominee is casting the race as moving his way and a ground falling out from president team obama. >> these debates have super charged our campaign. there's no question about it. we're seeing more and more enthusiasm, more and more support. we've gone through four debates with the vice presidential debate and my d
's got three stops in the buckeye state as the latest poll shows him trailing obama by five points. >> go out there and find some people, bring them to the polls. by the way if someone doesn't have a ride to the polls, help them get to the polls. we need to make sure ohio is going to send a message loud and clear, we want real change, we want big change, we're ready. this is our time. >> and obama trying to explain donald trump telling leno how that storied rivalry really began. >> this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> yeah. we had, you know, constant run-ins on the soccer field. you know he wasn't very good. >> right. >> resented it. >> yeah, yeah. >> good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. and we're following all of the action in a presidential contest that is basically tied. today, the candidates are scrambling. a big name makes an anticipated endorsement. talking about republicans and rhetoric about rape. joining me now for our daily fix, chris cillizza, manager editor of postpolitics.com and writer ruth marcus. breaking news, "the washington p
president obama and governor romney and how this became a debate that some political analysts are now calling a must-win for the president. welcome to "america live" where we are today live from lynn university in boca raton, florida. the site of it all. i'm megyn kelly. in eight hours the president and the republican challenger go head to head on this stage to face off on foreign policy. that topic could not be any hotter right now with new fallout almost every day from the administration's changing response to the terror attack in libya that killed our ambassador and three other americans a little more than a month ago. joining us now to explain what to watch for and why it matters, chris stirewalt, our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com along with marc thiessen, who's a washington post columnist and a former george w. bush speech writer. gentlemen, welcome to lynn university. here's the interesting thing i saw, stirewalt, in preparation for this debate. the president was 15 points up in the polls on foreign policy prior to debate number one in
women and abortion, comments that brought a stronger view from president obama. let me remind you first exactly what mourdock said. >> i struggled with it myself for a long time, but i came to realize life is that gift from god, and i think even when life begins in the horrible situation of rape that it is something that god intended to happen. >> so in the aftermath the president mentioned the fight for women's health just last hour at a rally in florida and here he was last night on "the tonight show." >> rape is rape. it is a crime. and so these distinctions about rape don't make too much sense to me. don't make any sense to me. >> in a press conference yesterday mourdock did not apologize for what he said, but said his words were misinterpreted. >> so many people mistook, twisted, came to misunderstand the points that i was trying to make. >> but the obama campaign wants to remind voters that with this new video that mitt romney supports richard mourdock and, in fact, he even cut a tv ad in support of him. i want to bring in ann cornblut, politics editor for "the washington post," p
. the tax rates will probably not go up if obama -- if mitt romney --. >>neil: what these guys are saying, this is a global problem. would it be solved with the locations? >>guest: i was thinking about that and i looked at stock market in november of 1994 the last time we had the big republican landslide election and in 24 hours of that election the market went through a six-year boom. so, maybe. >>neil: bill clinton took credit for that. >>guest: the combination of clinton who moved to the center and six great years. >>neil: if the president is re-elected would he move to the center? >>guest: i hope so. i would like to think that. probably not. but --. >>neil: he would interpret this as a vindication? >>guest: i think that, actually, that uncertainty and fear is playing on the market. in two weeks we could have a big, big, bull market. we could see that kind of 1994 change. once the cloud of fear disperses and it can happen so quickly, you can see all of these fundamentals change almost overnight. >>neil: thank you, always good to see you. in the meantime, from the meltdown to now what i
on the right, president obama on the left. look at the different messaging there. the headline very specific. >> in the final weeks of this election, he is counting on you for getting that his policies are not going to work. he is hoping you won't remember and he will come down with a case of what we call "rom-nesia." [cheers] [applause] megyn: so what does this mean in the final days? chris stirewalt is host of "power play" and a fox news correspondent. what do you think? the headline on the "des moines register" says a lot. reporter: the president took a huge risk on running an intensely negative campaign as an incumbent gray that. that is generally not one incumbent presidents do. they made a decision over six or seven months as to what has been shorthanded as the kill romney strategy. it works to some good effect and then romney had the first debate. he was different than what had been prescribed in the ads and he started to rise. now you see the president with no choice but to intensify those attacks and intensify the effort to try to kill romney in the closing days of the campaign. meg
if obama does win. some republicans say we should always have tax increases. others like tom cole say if obama wins -- it is going to be a problem for speaker boehner. remember, banner and the president seemed so close to having a grand bargain. a lot of those ideas will go back on the table. including raising the eligibility age. >> do in the talks but kicked back up between the speaker and the president? >> yes. whether there is a deal or not, it is going to be a harry reid, john boehner, president obama conversation. barring the outcome of the election. but it will have to cut some deals. because the rest of them will be so divided there will not be able to do anything. speaker boehner are is going to have to except the split. there is no way he can get them all to vote for a deal. >> mitch mcconnell could be in the middle. >> what is governor romney wins the presidency than a? >> i think if he wins, they do call the whole thing off. it is very hard to argue that he does not deserve the right to have his own budget. you will do that and the first few months of 2013. it is hard to i
test he could. but he didn't come across as strong and assertive in my view. >> how did, obama do? >> i thought he was an a minus. >> a. >> a, you get -- you are a tough a? >> i have not given an a in this entire series of debates to anyone. i thought this was actually barack obama's best moment. and to me the commander-in-chief test and strong and decisive was actually the most important thing in the campaign. it's why mitt romney rose in the aftermath of the first debate. i thought the president came across that way. tll was a few instances i thought he came across a little aggressive. as you watch the debate. you can see he is clear, decisive, and make the decisions you need to make. on that regard i give him an a. >> he seems more confident in this area? >> he is the commander-in-chief right now. let's just leave it at that. it wasn't quite as hard for him to reach that level of an a or a minus. than it was for mitt romney. >> let's give them the bottom line here. who's the winner in your judgment? >> i'm not going to say there is a clear winner. overall obama scored more points. mi

at the new yorker magazine. they just endorsed barack obama and all the talk about the des moines register. people are overlooking the fact he bagged "the new york times" and the new yorker. hurricane sandy caused president obama and mitt romney to cancel events in virginia. this is important because with only nine days left until election day, it comes down to math and geography, the votes and the map. the map shrunk to seven swing states, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin and ohio are all in play this cycle. president obama can count on 243 electoral votes that will go blue and romney can count on 106. with each having to get to 270 to win. the simple take away is the president's path to victory is significantly easier. polls show barack obama consistently ahead in iowa and wisconsin. if he holds on there, he won both last time, he just needs to win florida, ohio or virginia. he's behind in florida and a dead heat in virginia. he seems to be ahead in ohio. it's why the candidates are spending so much time in that state. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a r
positive things happen as part of the debate. i think obama you can look at your scorecard say he scored zingers, maybe wins on points. in terms of the big take aways. mitt romney was on the stage looking presidential, credible as an alternative to president obama. that's his goal. present himself as a credible alternative, possible choice for undecided voteders. >> so much throughout the debate you heard, mitt romney say i agree with you, mr. president. was it alternative? i don't think the average voter would see too much difference between the two? >> the romney campaign calculation this is going to come down to the economy and that's it. you need to get buy in on the other issues. this could be seen as a possible president on issues of commander-in-chief. i think his goal was to do no harm. not lobbing grenades at the obama foreign policy. where he had successes he was ready to applaud them. i am going to take what he has done and move it forward. he was the candidate of hope, and presentation of a positive vision more than president obama. >> the bottom line this debate was about fo
or so, president obama has arrived in southern florida. we should tell you that mitt romney is already there. the scene of tonight's debate is boca raton. and the subject is foreign policy. and the format will be this, barack obama and mitt romney, seated, they're going to be seated around a table with bob schieffer of cbs news. that's a hall you're looking at, obviously, it is a rehearsal. as you can see, they will be pretty cozy sitting around that table there. and now just in time for tonight's big debate, a very big story concerning foreign policy. possible, possible talks between the united states and iran after the election. one on one talks about iran's nuclear program and that would be a major shift in washington's policy toward tehran. keep in mind, though, the obama administration and iran both denight the talks have been agreed to. jim acosta, to you, he's at the scene for us of tonight's big debate, our coverage by the way begins tonight at 7:00 eastern. curious timing here, the story about potential talks between the u.s. and iran. i'm guessing that could take center stage
's an all hands on deck frenetic tour of swing states today as president obama and governor romney fight to close the deal in the final 13 days of the race for the white house. president obama right now on the way to colorado. the second stop of a two-day battleground glitz that started in iowa. >> this is the first stop on our 48-hour fly around campaign marathon extravaganza. we're going to pull an all-nighter. we joke but all of this speaks to something that's really important and that is the issue of trust. there's no more serious issue on a presidential campaign than trust. >> and you can follow the dots and follow where the money's being spent by both campaigns and see where all eyes likely focused election night. right now, ohio is the ad capital, dollar capital of the world if you will. $177 million being spent by the campaigns in that state alone. followed by florida at $174 million and virginia, $136 million. and ohio is where in a few minutes congressman paul ryan will give what the campaign is calling a major policy address on poverty and america's promise. as for the top of
, julie. believe it or not, voters sent to the polls two weeks from today. for president obama and mitt romney, the last phase in the race for the white house begins this morning. they held their final debate in florida last night. mr. obama was aggressive and lit up twitter with a couple of zippingers while government romney spent a lot of time on the offensive. doug luzader takes a closer look. >> reporter: they sat down at the table last night with the same ultimate goal in mind, and that is, of course, winning come november 6th. they have two different strategies to get there. >> this debate begins as they do, with a handshake. as they headed to their seats, they had different objectives. romney, to preserve his momentum, the president to get some back. when romney questioned cuts to the navy, a critical issue in the battleground state of virginia, the president delivered what his supporters think was the line of the night. >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than in 1916. governor, we have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military
